What we know about the Melbourne car rampage

All the details here

At least 14 people are injured, several of them critically, after a car ploughed into a crowd in central Melbourne today in what the police called a “deliberate act”. The driver and another man have been detained.

The terrifying incident took place just days before Christmas in Australia when the white SUV rammed into pedestrians at a busy intersection on Flinders Street railway station.

A witness told radio station 3AW that she heard screams before she saw “people flying everywhere”.

Asked if the incident was terrorism-related, Victorian Police commander Russell Barrett stated that the “motivations are unknown.”

Images from the scene showed casualties being treated in the street by paramedics.
